    I have always wondered how all you other lawn folk get that money from your clients. I bill some every mow and some by the month, and some bigger accounts annually. There seems to be a few that wait for a ridiculously long time but will eventually pay. What are some of your methods of retrieval?

    I bill once a month unless it's additional work that is done then it's billed that evening.

    Regular customers - all work goes on their monthly bill. The applications are billed separately, as all SOS have the price on them. For non-regular customers, for additional cleanups and such, they get billed upon completion of work. I like to call it "cash and carry". They pay me the cash, and I carry the stuff away. payup :weightlifter: :walking:

    so what are you trying to say? Should I bill monthly or would it be better to bill monthly? I personaly would say monthly but it seems like doing it monthly works better for most of you so I will try just billing monthly, thanks.

    Theres one guy that I bill monthly and he is always a day or 2 late on his payment, but he always pays. I just let him go because he is a good client.
